    Both driving and pedestrian safety in our town must be one of the highest priorities of membership. While vanity projects can make a town nicer, safety cannot take a back seat. As a result, more and better paving of our streets is my recommendation. Sidewalks, where feasible, should be a necessity. If a street cannot tolerate a sidewalk, then widening a road/street with a shoulder and painted margins should be considered.

    I’m also addressing my concern with maintenance and safety, directed towards busier streets and main roads. Indian Meal Line on the Torbay side needs desperate attention, as do some side streets that are connected to it (for example, Riverview Place). Roads are crumbling and safetey curb sides should be a measure to look into if sidewalks can’t be afforded at this time..
